Tourist Map Inflames Argentina-Chile Border Issue

The government of Chile is complaining about an Argentine tourist map of the Andean Southern Ice Field, the boundaries of which do not conform to a 1998 border agreement between the two countries’ presidents. The exact nature of the boundary complaint is not specified, but the article notes that the disputed area must be shown as blank (i.e., no border shown) until it’s sorted out. (The two countries have had more than their share of boundary disputes over their southern territories in recent history.)
